Versatile Mobile Surface Measurement

Light and compact in design, the Jenoptik W10 mobile surface roughness measuring system is designed for easy operation and features long-lasting battery power. The system is suited for measurements on the production line or machining cell. It will be introduced at Quality Expo Booth 208, (McCormick Place, Chicago, IL) September 10.

"The remote measuring capability brings the measurement lab to the shop floor," said a company spokesperson. "Operation is intuitive through the easy to understand graphic user interface. More than 800 measurements with one battery charge provide a high level of reliability even during frequent use. Measuring results may be quickly printed out on the optional printer-wirelessly via Bluetooth technology.

"Capable of checking more than 40 roughness and waviness parameters using an extensive array of probes and accessories, the new W10 can match the performance of more expensive stationary systems with its accuracy and precision.

"The new Jenoptik W10 is ergonomically designed, with the device easily fitting into the user's hand, making it simple to position on the workpiece. The wireless device can be used for transverse probing, overhead measurement, mobile measurement on small shafts and perpendicular measurement and is equipped with tripod legs to adapt to small workpiece height. An integrated V-groove securely positions small shaft type parts on the unit for measuring."

The W10 is capable of tracking eight separate measurement programs, including one for device verification, up to 100 separate profiles with a total storage capacity of up to 10,000 completed measurements.

The integrated click wheel allows the operator to intuitively select device functions. The large color display with graphic interface is designed for easy viewing of results and tolerance evaluations.

The roughness probes and measuring instrument electronics are calibrated independently from each other at the factory. This is intended to eliminate the need to make regular adjustments to the amplification or to recalibrate.

The extendable tripod legs can be used to adjust the measuring instrument to the height of small workpieces. This allows such measuring applications to be implemented without an additional means of holding.

The support prism centers workpieces like small shafts from 10 mm diameter on the correct measuring position and protects the probe for measurements in bores from 12 mm diameter.

The contact to the workpiece is made by polished support shafts for stable workpiece support. A height measuring stand can turn the W5 into a complete measuring station for tasks that require precise positioning.

The colored display of the measurement results, depending on the tolerance evaluation, allows the measurement results to be assessed at a glance.

The transparent probe cover, combined with the measurement position lighting, is intended to make the exact measurement position of the roughness probe easier to see.

All the necessary functions are covered with one USB port: battery charging function or permanent power supply, USB connection to PC to transfer parameters and profile data and external controls via foot switch.

With the optional TURBO DATAWAVE basic software, the measurement results from the W5 can be transferred into an Excel spreadsheet on a PC for further processing and documentation. TURBO DATAWAVE expert is an optional evaluation software for PC-controlled programming and parameter analysis and provides the ability to control the W5 remotely.

The thermal printer built into the W10 documents the measurement results on the spot - using Bluetooth without awkward cables. The roughness measuring instrument remains mobile, even if the measurements need to be documented.

The printer features "Easy Paper Loading" technology and is controlled from the roughness measuring instrument. The fiber glass-reinforced plastic casing is designed for industrial use. Up to five rolls of paper can be printed with one battery charge. Measuring conditions, parameters, tolerance evaluation, roughness profile and Abbott curve: depending on the measuring program, this information can be printed off individually or in combinations.
